During the celebration of its tenth anniversary, the UC Davis
School of Education reached a significant milestone. Between July
1, 2012, and June 30, 2013, individual, foundation and corporate
donors gave a total of $4,529,990—nearly $1 million more than the
previous year, signifying the School’s best fundraising year in
its history. In 2006, with the launch of The Campaign for UC
Davis, the School of Education set an ambitious goal of raising
$16 million through private giving. As of June 30, 2013, campaign
gifts to the School reached $16.3 million, exceeding our original
goal—thanks to so many of you.
But we aren’t done yet! The Campaign for UC Davis is not complete
until May 31 2014, so we plan to keep the momentum going. If the
campus is to meet its ultimate goal of raising $1 billion in the
Campaign, we need to keep up support to the School. Cheers to an
exciting year ahead!
